Navigating an Ocean of Biological Data in the Modern Era
JBEI’s -omics data visualization tool, Arrowland, facilitates new scientific discovery.
JBEI scientists explore novel enzyme for aromatic biofuel synthesis
In a Scientific Reports (Nature) paper entitled “In vitro characterization of phenylacetate decarboxylase, a novel enzyme catalyzing toluene biosynthesis in an anaerobic microbial community”, researchers at JBEI investigated an enzyme that could enable first-time biochemical production of the widely used octane booster, toluene.
Using hydrogen sulfide and CO2 to drive production of renewable fuels and chemicals
JBEI scientists demonstrate a biological approach to convert nuisance chemicals in municipal wastewater treatment (sewage) plants into renewable fuels or chemicals.
Scientists Harness CO2 to Consolidate Biofuel Production Process
JBEI scientists have shown that adding carbon dioxide gas during the deconstruction phase of biofuel production successfully neutralized the toxicity of ionic liquids. The technique, which is reversible, allows the liquid to be recycled, representing a major step forward in streamlining the biofuel production process.
JBEI Scientists Unravel Omics Data Using Systems Biology-Based Workflow To Improve Biofuels Productivity
A workflow was developed to assess and interpret multi-omics data to characterize strain variation in biofuel-producing E. coli.
